St. George is a great place to locate a business! The business licensing office wishes to offer assistance with the application process and has designed a set of questions and answers to help you understand some of the requirements for opening a business in St George. 



The City of St. George is in the process of updating the home occupation ordinance to adjust for recent changes made by the Utah State Legislature.  Due to these recent changes, many home occupations may no longer need to pay a business license fee.  Unfortunately, pending these changes, business license renewal notices were sent out in error to home occupation businesses. Please disregard the recent home occupation business license renewal notice. A new notice will be sent along with the changes made to the ordinances by the first of March 2018, along with any payment deadline if appropriate. The City is extending 2017 home occupation business licenses to April 1, 2018 so you do not need to renew your license at this time.  For those who have already submitted their renewal, a refund is being processed.


If you have any questions or would like to discuss this matter, please contact us at 435-627-4740.  We apologize for this error and any confusion that it may have caused.  We wish you a happy holiday season and New Year.
